I've not figured out how to carry enough water, I don't like to stop and buy water. Most of the ride, water is in view, rivers, streams, creaks. but Not drinkable. So If I finish my bottles, I have to find a fountain, or a Stop and Sop. I'm not a fan of buying a plastic bottle of water at the stop and shop. maybe I'll pull into a development, ride up a driveway, lean my bike on the side of the house, and find a spicket. steal a bit. and be on my way.
